As they approach Dublin, the color tones gradually go from drab black and white to vivid color. The dullness of their working class existence is replaced by the mysterious and hypnotic sights of Dublin's nightlife. Daly shows us a wild montage of street musicians, shopping malls, falafel stands and Bob Dylan’s impersonators. While the dream turns to a nightmare by the third act, the seemingly fragile kids avoid great dangers as they travel through Dublin’s underworld. The film offers a dramatic illustration of two people learning to rely on each other punctuated by the lessons they learn. “Kisses” is directed with rigor and precision. It is a wonderful dramatic work, suspenseful and compelling. The film opens today in New York and Los Angeles.
